Halloween Happenings

Friday was a fun (and candy) filled day for Grant and I. He went in to work with me so we could start trick or treating a little early and was excellent. We left Claire out of the afternoon rounds hoping that she would be well rested for the evening. Instead, Claire spent much of the night like this:I, personally, love the tail coming out of her car seat. You can't tell much from this picture, but she was a kitty cat. By the time she woke up, it was her dinner time so mammy had to take her and feed her while the rest of us went house to house to collect some loot!

Grant picked out this banana costume several months ago. I let him look through all of the catalogs and day after day, this is what he kept asking for. I finally gave in and went and got it...right before it went on sale! Gotta love that. I ended up going back to PBK and getting a price adjustment, so it worked out.

Claire was precious in her costume, but due to the really warm weather she didn't last very long in the whole thing. I love her cheeks in a hood or anything on her head. They're so sweet! I didn't get a great picture of her as a black cat, so I think there will be an after Halloween photo shoot! Here's a picture in just the "head" part of the costume and her kitty shirt that wasn't part of the costume.

Why did the banana and the mermaid cross the street?

To get more treats!!

Both of kids were totally freaked out by masked people and witches, ghosts, etc. It was pretty comical. Claire got so skiddish that when we got home, she was scared of any and all of her toys that moved. We couldn't stop laughing at her, but we really hope we didn't scar her for life! I love Halloween and all the treats associated with it! Now, I just have to try not to eat all of the candy. I'm pretty picky when it comes to candy though. I'm more of a baked goods kind of girl just in case you hadn't noticed:-)!
Hope everyone had a fun filled Halloween!
